LO has almost outgrown her 9 month sleepers and finding 1-piece sleepers for 12 month plus seems to be hard to find in brick & mortar stores around here.
I was going to order some from Carters online, but I wanted to check here first. A couple of the reviews have said that they run crazy small and super snug. I know pjs need to be tight, but I don't want to order a bunch and they not work out.
What has been your experience with their pjs for 12 months +?

LO has a set of Carters 18m 2 piece pjs. They are "snug" but the fabric is very stretchy so it's not tight.
TCP also has footed one piece that I really like for the summer! But they are long sleeved.

I didn't find that they run crazy small at all. My DS is a small guy, but he is still able to fit into his 12-18 month sleepers (he is 21 months) so I would say they run TTS.

There are two kinds at Carters, the ones that are the snug fit and not flame resistant and the ones that are looser fit and flame resistant. Check below the imprinted label.
My son is always ahead in the Carters pjs. He's 2.5 and we just had to go up to 4T because his feet were too big and the collar was down to his belly button (exxagerating, but you get the point).

My LO is big but right now she's in 18 month sleepers from Carter's at almost 11 months old. She's about 23-24 lb and at 9 months she was 29.25 inches long. We switched her to 18 month size around 9 months though because she's so long. One of the sleepers is a little too long but the other two fit her perfectly so I'm not sure what the difference is.

We switched to the 2 pc ones around 7 months. Lo is 9 months in a few days and 12 months in Carters sizing. (I always take it to mean 3 months = 0-3, 6 months = 3-6, etc.) We have a couple of 18 month one piece sleepers we are hoping fit when it gets cold again... I think we'll stick with two piece for the summer and then see where we're at in the winter. My mom says my brother and I got to 2t by 1 year old, and then it slowed down a lot.

I think the cotton 1-piece ones from Carter's are a bit more snug than some of the others I've bought (I can only buy cotton because of my son's ezcema). I just thought he would be uncomfortable in them because he's big and getting the next size up would have made them too long. I prefer the 1-pieces from Gap or The Children's Place.

We just switched DS to the 12 month Carter's as the 9 month were getting a little short in the length. They fit him really well - we have the snug jersey style. I'm going to order a bunch more!
ETA: I just looked and Carter's has free shipping for 3 days for orders over $50!

The snug / non flame retardant ones I feel are really small.
They are tight on B - he is about to grow out of 12mo and he is only 6 months old!

Just pay attention to the name. Some say "Snug Fit" and some dont. The snug fit ones are very lean fitting and the ones that aren't are regular PJs.
